"What was that?" I asked grabbing Carries arm as I heard footsteps behind us.
She laughed and shone the torch over the area.
I rolled my eyes, the first time it was a bat in the tree, the other 7 times; nothing!
"Why am I all of a sudden hearing things?" I asked slightly irritated with my mind.
"You're just paranoid that Fizzy Fanta Boy is gonna catch us."
I nodded; "Well he does know we're out, he caught me snooping remember?"
She laid a blanket out on the ground and we both laid on it; staring up at the stars.
"Maybe not it's a possibility he thinks he's going crazy."
She turned to face me and her eyes widened.
"What?" I asked suddenly worried.
I slowly turned around to see nothing there, Carrie burst out laughing and I turned back to slap her.
"Your face!" She imitated my facial expression before bursting out laughing again.
I rolled my eyes, immature much?
"No but seriously he won't catch us we'll be fine." She settled down just enough to reassure me before continuing her fit.
I heard voices and I clamped my hand over her mouth.
"Shh." I put my finger to my lips as she made un-human-like protests.
"Wait, is someone out there?" A girls voice called out.
I looked at Carrie as she took my hand away; "Say something." She whispered.
"I'm giving up on you."
She shook her head; "Not the time for lyrical bombs! Do something!"
"Don't judge me!" I mocked Connor the best I could earning a stifled laugh from her.
"Is that you Connor?" The girl called out.
"Yes just me!" I continued my fake voice and accent hoping she didn't come over to catch us out.
I shone the torch in that direction to see her walking away.
Thank god we could have gotten well and truly busted then.
I can almost hear babble brains lecture now.
His voice sounded in my head like some sort of haunting war chant.
'You've gotta learn to follow the rules and stay in your cabin and not sneak out and just behave and stop trying to rebel, just focus and the week will be over before you know it. You can't be introverts all your lives!'
Ergh get it out please!
That was definitely not a highlight of my minds wandering...
